mitt romney. debate subject area, domestic policy. debate moderator, jim lara. structure, six 15-minute segment. three focus on the economy, four, five, and six health care, the role of government and governing. procedure, each candidate gets two minutes to respond to a question posed by jim lara. time remaining is given to freewheeling discussion of segments. risk factor, dangerous, sometimes lethal. ♪ [music] ♪ >> are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? is america as respected throughout the world as it was? do you feel that our security is as safe, that we're as strong as we were four years ago? if you answer all of those questions yes, why then i think your choice is obvious as to who you'll vote for. if you don't agree, if you don't think that this course that we've been on for the last four years is what you would like to see us follow for the next four, then i could suggest another choice that you have. >
. >> reporter: from there, romney turned to education policy at a forum sponsored by nbc news. >> we have proven that sending a lot of money to failed schools to pay the same teachers to do the same things will not make any difference. the real key is leadership in drawing the best and brightest to the profession, giving them the right incentives, promoting the very best, helping our students have discipline in the classroom, insisting on the participation of parents. >> reporter: the candidate new york city stop came as another poll. this one from the "washington post" found ohio swinging toward the obama column. no republican has won the white house without ohio. with that in mind, romney and running mate paul ryan began a bus tour through ohio this afternoon. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. supreme court upheld west virginia's congressional redistricting plan today. critics of the redistricting had argued that the populations within newly drawn districts were too far out of balance, but the supreme court reversed a lower court ruling and said the state legislatures was correct in trying to keep coun
has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the president is the one to blame for the economy we've got right now. >> there is something going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he is showing disrespect to the president but if he doesn't, then he looks defer yen shl. coach me, tell me how to walk on that stage -- deferential. coach me without being deferential? >> it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. as long as governor romney addresses the president with mr. president, your policies have failed the american people. i think as long as he carries a respectful tone. he needs to be what i would say as p
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has saturated the air waves. the president and his team are out spending the romney team on television though both campaigns have spent more here than in any other battleground state. the president and groups supporting him have spent $49.9 million in ohio while romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney camp says it's not bothered by poll numbers say they have confidence by their own internal polling and believe they are making inroads in ohio and message of lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we won't have four more years of barack obama. >> now if you had any doubt about the importance of ohio look at the campaign schedule today. t
. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that out. >> i disagree with that. i disagree with that. the suggestion that somehow america could or even should be in the drivers seat in the arab spring is inherently ridiculous. i mean what happened in egypt was done by the people, the young people, primarily, in tahrir square. then the egypt that was left having lost its autocratic superstructure was still an egypt, just look at the distribution of the population, most likely to produce an islamist government, with which it did. all along the way we should try to maximize our values and our interests, including freedom and human rights, and not just majority rule but minority rights, and individual rights. but we couldn't control it, and we shouldn't. and i expect that's what president morsi will say here tomorrow. but if you look at libya, we had more opportunities to influence it, and we did. and we influenced it in a very positive way. and they like us more than a lot of people d
have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist
. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so many ways this is also domestic policy, these wars. first of all, veterans benefits and the fact that the romney camp views this as part of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to t
foreign policy the best? obama, 49%. romney, 46%. margaret? go ahead. >> absolutely. this is a strong suit for president obama, but we have also seen the numbers soften in the past few weeks, especially since the attacks on our embassy abroad on september 11th. this goes to a point of where is the american leadership? no actionable response that the american ambassador was killed in an embassy abroad. >> i think we have done a lot of things but i think the most interesting thing about yesterday is looking at the two of them, i was there at the clinton global initiative where they spoke a couple hours apart. and i thought romney was terrif terrific. >> we'll play that and then we'll talk about it. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terror attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we are at the mercy of eve
or e-mail them to us. >>> the president's approach to foreign policy is what mitt romney is talking about. >> he is bouncing on president obama for referring to the recent attack at the consulate in libya as quote bumps in the road. >>> the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. that was by reaction. we had an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood a member elected to the presidency of egypt 20,000 people have been killed in syria. we have trouble in pakistan. of course iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not bumps in the road. it is time for a president to be shaping events not just be mers il. i will get america on track for the kind of leadership we need so we can shape the future of this part of the world and keep america strong. >> the white house responding to his criticism saying republicans are searching toer something to grab on to. the president's views are clear and strong. >>> they are talking and hitting romney on his plan for the economy. during his much criticized appearance on "the view."
on foreign policy against romney, and he doesn't really draw more attention to all the unrest in the middle east that's going on right now, but, you know, pairing his visit with going on "the view" obviously was really bad optics. the campaign is sort of trying to backtrack that, saying it was a scheduling matter, both events were in new york, so he tried to be efficient with his time. it's sort of just a lose-lose situation for him. if he had met with the leaders, he would have drawn more attention to the problems in the middle east. >> greta: he could have done both. he could have gone on "the view" and met with world leaders, right, steve? >> yeah. >> greta: i mean, he could have done both. >> it's inconceivable that he didn't meet with world leaders, that he didn't change his schedule to meet with bibi netanyahu. if you believe the rhetoric coming out of the white house and the state department they buy the way that the israelis define the threat. they sort of want to believe the urgency. yet the president won't meet with netanyahu on -- potentially on the verge of a war, in an effort t
the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled. >> romney put out two new ads. saying his policies will make life better for voters. susan mcginnis is in washington with all of this this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, terrell. romney is in pennsylvania today, not airing any ads in the state today. this is a state that hasn't supported a republican in nearly 25 years. apparently his visit, according to his aides talking privately is more about fund-raising to try to sort of slow the president's momentum with early voting in many areas under way. early voting began in iowa thursday morning and voters lined up to cast their ballots. president obama's team is feeling confident that most of these early votes will be for the president. >> this many people this early in the morning really shows that there's strong support here in iowa for the president. >> reporter: on thursday, both candidates were in another battleground state. >> how's it going, virginia beach? >> reporter: president obama talked to voters in southern virginia. >> growing our ec
, governor mitt romney is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver, and jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do, talking about economy and jobs? instead, it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road and he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on, they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made on "60 minutes", saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house was talking about recent events
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
't rise to the level of the 47% comment that everyone was abscessed with last week around mitt romney because this campaign isn't being designed by foreign policy and most polls have shown obama has a nice cushion there, and i think because mitt romney has had his own fumbles, if he could show more competency on these other issues, the voters might give him he benefit of the doubt. in our own political, georgia washington survey today, you see the president expanding the lead. >> eliot: david was being nice he hasn't just fumbled the football here. we all remember the era when we did feel as though we were under siege, will they have any traction on that issue? >> it doesn't seem likely. think of how -- you know how he fumbled this thing with israel. one of our allies instead of our main ally come on. if it was syria, then yeah that would be a bad screw up, but come on. >> eliot: i agree this is parsing syntax that shows how desperate the other side is. and david, so let me come back to you, that's what i continue to marvel at. mitt romney has not given the speech
. president obama and mitt romney intensified their attacks on each other over foreign policy, the economy and taxes as they count down to their first debate. deep deen told reporters in new york that israel has no roots in the middle east and would be eliminated. his comments came ahead of the annual united nations general assembly session. and the backlash against extremists in libya gained momentum, as the army named two officers to replace the heads of two of the most powerful islamist militias. online we feature the work of a veteran recently recognized for his poetry. hari sreenivasan explains. >> sreenivasan: earlier this month, army veteran hugh martin won a new literary prize from the "iowa review" in a contest open only to active duty military personnel and veterans. hear him read his poem "intravenous" on art beat. and our partners at global post report from a hospital in battle-torn aleppo, syria. a warning: that video may be disturbing to some viewers. all that and more is on our web site, newshour.pbs.org. gwen? >> ifill: and that's the newshour for tonight. on tuesday, paul
lou: cover romney in new york today give a very good speech before the clinton initiative, but it was one that, frankly, was somewhat discordant because it was not relevant to the foreign policy issues being discussed by the leader of the free world and the commander in chief. what is your reaction? >> i think that mitt romney is in a position to win this presidential race. i think it is very important that he stop acting like a candidate and start acting like the president of the united states. what i would have had him do today is be meeting with these four leaders as the president refused to do and give that differentiation between the president of the united states sitting there on a talk show talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid
policy and, of course, a presidential race between president obama and governor romney. it is getting better all the time. stay with us. >> third world dictators behave like this if ronald reagan when the president? remember. maybe romney is taking a page out of that playbook. looking for a better place to put your cash? here's one you may not have thought of -- fidelity. now you don't have to go to a bank to get the things you want from a bank, like no-fee atms, all over the world. free checkwriting and mobile deposits. now depositing a check is as easy as taking a picture. free online bill payments. a highly acclaimed credit card with 2% cash back into your fidelity account. open a fidelity cash management account today and discover another reason serious investors are choosing fidelity. ♪ lou: joining me now, the "a-team" great to have you with us. let me start with you. the president's speech today, he did not in conjunction with the state of israel say they are allied. he did not talk or mention once radical islam. or radical islamists, and he did not specifically call the atta
to say the president's policies have failed or does romney need to layout in terms that americans can understand what he would do to bring this debt and deficit down? >> i think you've hit the nail on the head, he must spell out what he's going to do about this huge problem. in my opinion, what he must do is spell out how he will grow america's economy. we must grow at at least a 4% rate. if we can do that we raise the level of employment, we raise more money in taxes, we cut the deficit and if we have a long-term plan to deal with our spending, and i stress long term, that is an answer to our problems. essentially mr. romney has to tell the world how will he grow america's economy compared to the miserable rate of growth that we've had for the last three and a half years. >> reporter: it's going to be an interesting debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time
not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our econom
is doing better. argument between romney and obama. who can do a better job of bringing the country totally back? >> republican governor john kasich argues his policies like reducing taxes and balancing the budget made the difference here. >> nothing else matters other than issue of jobs, economy, and prosperity. who is going to deliver it. >> that is what voters like kim may want to hear. she was out of work and without a lead for a new job, she started her own consulting company from inside the home she was once afraid to lose. as a constant stream of political commercials roll across her television, kim and pat will vote republican, saying they know what they want in their next president. >> be strong. >> be the man. stand up. this is what we need to do. i'm going to take full control of this. don't worry. >> this is the way we're going. >> the way ohio goes in november, having picked last eight presidential winners will tell the rest of america a lot. in columbus, ohio, bill hemmer, fox news. >> bret: with that, don't forget tonight's next to vote question. who will win ohio? text sr1 t
's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where
? caller: yes. i plan to vote for mitt romney. host: because of foreign policy issues or economic/domestic issues? caller: both. host: now to a democratic caller in pennsylvania, don. caller: the u.n. has failed is rail many times. one time when egypt threatened to close the strait and the war against the egyptians started. they failed israel miserably in the north at the southern part of a non. southern part of lebanon. they promised that has a law would not be allowed to re-arm. -- hezbollah would not be allowed to re-arm. on august 10 of 2012 in the inquiry there was an article called "terrorism and palestinian statehood," . read.people should " hos and this on twitter -- the washington times has this headline -- calling for the policy makers in the united states to put the fiscal cliff ahead of politics. in texas, a democratic caller, henry. caller: good morning. romney is about a year-and-a- half older than i am. i remember in the 1960's they were drafting everybody like crazy. from what i've understand, he went on the religious sabbatical and took a religious draft exemption
and romney laying out his plan for a pros pair path. lestarat tle so, steve, you have a theory for why foreign policy the talk of the town this week. >> well, because it's u.n. week. i mean that's the obvious. 'roi o on a limb here. >> i'm glad we built this up. i wouldn't be surprised if it's still something they're talking about after u.n. week and it strikes me that there's a lot of evidence, and even evidence from repuican polls that the ntrehe romney campaign that there are going to be swing voters, that economic frustration will ultimately lead them to say i won't ask questions. i want to turn to mitt romney, that too's just not working. the newest evidence today, republican polter david winston said 18% of his asked and 18% if they're better off than fou years ago. 77% whether they believe things will get better in the future. 48% say problems are caused by the past, 45% say the curnt economic policies are causing more problems. the romney campaign is basically losing. it's basicly a wash. kpta gin for other things and that's why we're hearing -- >> romney is ahead over veterans
. their relationship has been tense, even frosty, an issue that mitt romney has tried to exploit. >> they have thrown israel under the bus. >> i have executed on my foreign policy, one that people largely agree with. so if governor mitt romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. >> reporter: still unclear, how much of today's tough talk is meant to do something sanctions have not achieved, get iran to negotiate. savannah. >> all right, how close is iran to the point of no return? there is a big difference between american intelligence and israel's view, the u.s. feels there is at least a year, and no need to take action quickly. israel wants it to be quicker and for the u.s. to be involved. >>> meanwhile, on the campaign trail, the candidates were shadowing each other in a crucial swing state, this time, virginia, chief correspondent chuck todd has more. >> reporter: good evening, savannah, the presidential campaign, of course is focused on nine states where the polls are close. and every year, one state stands out from the rest, in 2004, it was florida, ohio, more and more,
ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state'
policies. look, mitt romney's supposed strength has been the economy. he's been running for president for five years. so it's not that voters don't know him. it's that they know him too well. he has lost his edge on the economy in all of the recent polls. so voters are now looking at him to say, okay, if we don't trust him on the economy which has been the foundation for his platform for running for president, we certainly don't trust him on any of the other issues that are important to us. like education, like housing, like jobs. and so we don't like what he is telling us. and especially when you have the video that came out, it's absolutely devastating. so it's going to be very tough to turn this around. >> let me set that up just for a second. mary, you got a lot of attention for something you said to me right here in "the situation room" last week. let's listen and talk about it. >> many of us have been waiting for mitt romney to say this clearly and loudly, there are makers and takers, there are producers and there are parasites. i hope he doesn't just double down, quadruples dow
regulation an anti-federal healthcare as you could get. the policy have the states coming and mitt romney must be shaking his head at this president just gaining. see that exchange. in the most electorate rich state, this is the state of them. expanding business, defines everything that the president preaches you have to do to improve this. it's romney getting the business. if the polls hold up, mitt romney potentially getting the shaft. i don't think things are that simple or they work out that way, ask yourself this when you look at electoral map. how is that a race decided across the country is showing something different across the republican-run state, states that are beating the national average. jobs gained, businesses charged and volt voters. they say it's testment to what happens when you put republican in charge of the state. wouldn't it be a pit if it means democrats staying in charge of the country? e-mails are pouring in fast and furious. people just can't believe the impact that my one-on-one with paul ryan at the republican convention had on the presidential race. i got us
he's going to be talking foreign policy at the clinton global initiative later today as will romney and then it's back on the campaign trail. both men are going to be campaigning tomorrow in the battleground state of ohio. so a lot of people of course accusing the president of putting his reelection efforts over foreign policy, over the u.n., but, you know, at some point it is just american politics. that's how it is, right? >> absolutely. he has spoken to some world leaders before this general assembly meeting. so we'll continue to report the controversy. thanks, kristin reporting live outside the white house. >>> in king george county, virginia, a memorial to members of the military now stands in front of a landfill. jerry lynn smith lost her husband in iraq. then she found out some of his remains are were among those classified as medical waste and dumped in the landfill on virginia's northern neck. she was there yesterday as a plaque was unveiled. smith has already had some success in getting the military to make changes to try and ensure something like this never happens again.
by as much as ten points in the state. trade policy with china will be front and center today. romney claims president obama hasn't been tough enough. and this morning, the obama campaign is slamming romney for his investment in chinese companies. >>> new worries on wall street. global stocks down sharply today, partly because of growing unrest in europe. violent protests erupted in spain and greece, against severe new government spending cuts. >>> meanwhile, here at home, despite encouraging news about the housing market, investors are concerned after the federal reserve announced that he's not sure the fed's pollies will be enough to get the economy going again. >>> and the nfl and the locked out referees have reportedly returned to the bargaining table, amid the controversial call by replacement referees monday night. green bay lost that game, sort of. and now, the city's mayor has written a letter to roger goodell saying the scandal jeopardizes green bay's economy. >>> and coppertone sunscreen, will settle a lawsuit for claiming it was water-proof. >>> and whitney houston's daughter, bob
affair, on foreign policy, as barack obama has over mitt romney. so, the republicans wl try to make an issue of nghazi, they'll try to makn issf dothink it's sticking. and i think the successful kill of bin laden did this president an enormous amount of political good, not just in this area, but almost across the board in terms of making him seem strong and resolute, and it becomes vy difficult for the republicans to make the casin ll, it also is difficult to make the case, it begets the question, what are you going to do? i mean are you going to -- are you going to put boots on the ground it iran? there's absolutely no appetite in terms of arin plic io terms of intervention in the middle east. >> to howard's point, the issue of mubarak is out and the transition from american ally to new leadership, while messy, happened. gadhafi's done. there's a lot to point to, when the president says you've got to trusme, there i a lot to t same time this is a referee kind of role. look at jeff goldburg, authority on american reporting about the issue, he said from the beginning that people are
is the same as the president's. mitt romney and has basically described the current policy as criticism. you asked how long we have. it is important to remember that iran is not on the brink of having a nuclear weapon. they have made clear progress. they are accumulating uranium at certain levels, but it was still take them at least one year to develop a nuclear device. that is likely to remain the case for some time to come. more importantly, for them to make such a move toward a device could be detected. the only way they can generate material for a nuclear device is t facilities that as are under inspection. they would get caught in plenty of time and giving americans and others to respond. we will not be caught with our pants down on us. we still have time to achieve a diplomatic outcome and let the sanctions soak in. we can find a peaceful way out of this before rushing into another war in the middle east. >> let me follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on its own withou
needs to be more defined in his policies, especially about the middle east. romney turned out to give the president air cover. there are serious questions about what happened in libya in the absence of security, and what is our middle east policy, but romney's missteps really have given the president more camouflage than he would have expected. we'll learn a lot more next week when we have the rumble in the rocky mountains. >> that column, a conservative column asking for more details has been written every week by somebody about mitt romney for the last six months. there's your problem. >> and it says there's a leadership vacuum. the republicans i talked to say this is no longer about keeping score on policy. this is not about ideology. this is about can you see this person being president for another four years or for the first time? that's what they are faced with. >> on this question of empathy though, isn't it too late for mitt romney to change the way people view him? he began his campaign on june 2nd, 2011. the country knows who he is for the most part, sending ann romney talki
be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that it has not been as effective. the unemployment rate is over 8%. republicans think they should be winning and right now it's neck and neck if not a bit of a lead for president obama. >> of course the presidenti
into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he's got to be able to litigate the case, make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. because folks believe the economy's bad right now, but what they don't actually believe is that it's the president's fault. he is got to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him, that the president is the one to blame for the economy that we've got right now. >> mike: there's a little bit of delicacy going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he's showing disrespect to the president. if he doesn't go after him like you've said he'll look deferential. coach me as if i was mitt romney, the office without being deferential. >> i think it's a matter of tone and how you address the president. he think as long as governor romney addresses the president as mr. president, with all due respect,
in his policies, especially about the middle east. romney turned out to give the president air cover. there are serious questions about what happened in libya in the absence of security, and what is our middle east policy, but romney's missteps really have given the president more camouflage than he would have expected. we'll learn a lot more next week when we have the rumble in the rocky mountains. >> that column, a conservative column asking for more details has been written every week by somebody about mitt romney for the last six months. there's your problem. >> and it says there's a leadership vacuum. the republicans i talked to say this is no longer about keeping score on policy. this is not about ideology. this is about can you see this person being president for another four years or for the first time? that's what they are faced with. >> on this question of empathy though, isn't it too late for mitt romney to change the way people view him? he began his campaign on june 2nd, 2011. the country knows who he is for the most part, sending ann romney talking about his health care
the president on foreign policy, right? >> they are. both mitt romney and paul ryan are making the case that the president has been unclear, lacks transparency, and seems to be reluctant to refer to the attacks in libya as terrorism. they further distance themselves, they didn't actually buy into senator john barrasso's assertion that it's a cover-up, but they're clearly upset to see they see the whole thing as further illustration of the president's inannual to assert the u.s. leadership and strength clearly around the world. watch. >> the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own admission is saying and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. look, we expect candor from the president and transparency. and he continues to refuse to acknowledge what is said by the other members of the administration. this was a terrorist attack. we were attacked apparently by al-qaeda and it's a very troubling development. >> this is part of the story of when we project weakness overseas by gutting the military, with the presid
opponent is clueless because he is on the ououtside. romney is a dolit for attacking our middle east policy but not the president for not knowing the policy. we can't make it up. you better make sure you are ripping both or you prove you had no standard, actually you prove you have one standard electing the guy you like, not the guy you don't. that is when it gets offensive, when you take ofin t offense toy one gay
! >> mitt romney and paul ryan have the experience and record and they have the public policy plans to put america back to work. before we give a warm miami valley welcome to the next president and vice president of the united states i want you to give a warm welcome to a colleague of mine and friend who snuck across the border from kentucky today. he is a doctor who understands the dangers of obama care. he is a fiscal conservative who understands the nature of the record debts and deficits and understands they are a danger to our country and kids. finally, folks, he is someone who believes that we can not afford another four years of this. gentlemen, i give you mr. paul. >> anybody think it is time for a new president? >> anybody here think like i do that obama care is still unconstitutional? >> yeah. >> anybody here offended and mortified to see people around the world burning the american flag? >> yeah! >> president obama's response? send them more money. >> boo! >> they are attacking our embassies, burning our flag, torturing and imprisoning the man who helped us get bin laden. what i
is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of th
policy and it is one that the american people largely agree with. you know, if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. when it comes to our national security cisions, any pressure that i feel is simply to do what's right for the american people. i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> was he calling binyamin netanyahu noise and having copping dialogue on this? >> not at all. the president's record with respect to strong support for israel would be one of his finest accomplishments in office, security and military and intelligence cooperation between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership is actually historic. talk to the people in the southern israeli and how they are now protected by the iron dome, anti-missile system which president obama has been instrumental in helping to pay for, israel's military qualitative edge continues to be extremely strong. we have had the largest joint military exercises between the united states and israel under president obama's leadership and there is more to come. whet
. the white house says he'll discuss several foreign policy issues. this comes as mitt romney criticizes the president over comments he made about the violence in the middle east. nbc's tracie potts is back with us this morning live on capitol hill. tracie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. there's a lot at stake not only as the president tries to explain where we stand on the middle east and other issues, but also for the president himself politically, you may have seen him on "the view" talking about some of these issues, including libya and the deaths of our ambassadors and three others there that was not terrorism but officials say was planned. today as he speaks to the united nations general assembly, the focus will be the unrest in the middle east and the deaths of those in libya, saying we need to take a deeper look at what's behind the crisis and not just what happened there. but mitt romney is saying -- criticizing the president for calling these events bumps in the road. here's what romney said. >> bumps in the road? we had an ambassador assassinated. we had a
foreign policy and one that the american people largely agree with. so, you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell reporting. >>> this morning iran is responding to netanyahu's red line comments saying it reserves the right to retaliate against any attack. meantime, new internal israeli government report finds that international sanctions are, in fact, hurting iran's economy but have not slowed down the nuclear program. the report calls for another round of sanctions to be implemented. >> in the race for the white house, we have got new batch of poll numbers coming out on three more battleground states. according to the new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist college poll, the president has a slim lead over voters in north carolina where the democrats held their national convention earlier this month. obama won the state in 2008 by less than 1%. he also has a two-point advantage in nevada, well within the margin of error and in new hampshire where mitt romney owns a home, obama leads 51% to 44%. in all
running the foreign policy establishment if you elected mitt romney -- these folks led us into the most disastrous foreign policy decision in a generation which was the invasion of iraq. it empowered iran, it created a trillion dollars of debt charged on the national credit card, it killed more than 4,000 americans, it wounded more than 30,000, it left hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or displaced. and yet these folks want us to hand the keys of foreign policy back to them? it's, it's -- i mean, the nerve of the individuals who drug us into the worst foreign policy disaster in the middle east in a generation, to say that they somehow understand this region better is, it's laughable, frkly. >> well, you mentioned syria. how -- there's a lot of pressure for the administration to get more involved in syria. how do you think the administration is responding, how should it respond? >> well, on this issue it's interesting. you know, if you actually peel away a lot of governor romney's positions on a lot of issues, there's not a lot of difference between him and president obama. in fact, s
. and finally champion small business. have tax policies, regulations, and healthcare policies that help small business. we put those in place; we'll add twelve million new jobs in four years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> you know what a nuisance is to get through security. >> it will let you leave your shoes and belts on when you pass through checkpoints. >> this is the airport security we of all come to know, and not love. that is not what he had to do. he breezed through this new checkpoint in under two minutes. >> this is game changing amazing. >> airport security, it is called tsa pre-check. it allows a frequent fliers to be prescreened. dulles is the first airport to build a prescreening area. >> so far it is only the high level frequent-flier us who are invited to opt in. active-duty military. only a select airports and only for domestic travel. >> if you travel any more than twice a month, it is fantastic. >> i kept my shoes on like an adult. >> airlines like united are just as excited about the program. >> we are in a customer service business. the scre

tension over the prime minister's push for the u.s. to make amore aggressive stance. governor romney spoke with the leader by phone and renewed his attacks on the president for his foreign policy. ed henry with the news live from the white house tonight. president obama is taking heat for not meeting with benjamin netanyahu face to face and today vice president biden addressed that, right? >> that's right, shep. vice president biden many times has gotten into trouble for veering off message and saying something maybe the white house didn't want him to say. today was a case where he stood up for the president. he was at an event where he is supposed to be talking about medicare down in florida with senior citizens. he took a moment out to say wait a second, stop these attacks on the president over israel. take a listen. >> i want to tell you how proud i am. how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president. >> top white house officials insists during this call with the prime minister today president obama made clear t

to be increasing his lead over mitt romney. is that because at heart voters don't really vote on foreign policy, or is it because they don't think romney is any more credible than the president on foreign policy matters? >> well, actually, gregg, if you start looking closely at some of those interim polls -- internal polls, if you start looking specifically at the question about job approval on handling of national security and foreign policy issues, over the last couple of weeks president obama's numbers have really steadily dropped -- gregg: but only 4% say they vote on such matters. >> well, that may be the case, but it is an overall picture when voters go to the polls. we understand we're in a war whether we want to see it clearly or not, we are in a war, and we're not just voting for an economic steward or president, we're also voting for a commander in chief. there was a brand new national bloomberg poll released today, gregg, that actually shows governor romney leading president obama on the issue of terrorism by six points. gregg: julie, we know now that within 24 hours of this 9/11 att

that option off the table. >> seems like a little softer stance there from mitt romney coming out now, too. no talk of red lines. so what's going on overall? >> well, clearly the president's policy is the one that everyone is coalescing around. even mitt romney finds it hard to disagree with a notion that we should have a diplomatic solution. some of his advisers like john bolton, however, argued for bombing yesterday. but that flies in the face of a broad swath of bipartisan security experts who argue that bombing iran would facility their acquisition of a nuclear weapon. >> okay, joel rubin. many thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> office politics. savannah guthrie tells me about her latest interview with president obama and the questions she wish she had asked him. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the style.
